Unless you've been living under a rock for the past twenty-four hours, you'll be aware that President Trump has embarked on his highly-anticipated state visit to the United Kingdom.
The Brits have never been ones to beat around the bush, and they have always made their thoughts on Trump quite clear... They're not his biggest fans, to say the least. So the President's presence in their country was always going to be responded with some controversy.
And one rebel group have gone to extra efforts to make their thoughts on the President's visit heard loud and clear... by projecting incriminating images and Twitter screenshots on famous London landmarks. Not the warmest of welcomes, is it?
The projections, which were projected onto famous spots like the Tower of London and Madame Tussaud's, were hastily removed, but not before they went viral online for the world to see.
We have always had a close relationship with the UK.
via: GettyWe have no closer ally than Great Britain... so it is mildly worrying that the British public now seem keen to boot our leader out of their country, a mere 2 seconds after touching down on their soil.
His first official State visit hasn't been a warm one.
via: GettyLike the weather there, the majority of the UK's response to Trump's arrival has been cold and frosty. Thousands of protesters took to the streets of London today to voice their anger towards the President and his relationship with their country.
The "Trump Baby" has already made a reappearance...
via: GettyWe can't forget the famous #TrumpBaby, can we? Though it is viciously mocking and degrading our President, I have to admit that it is quite uncanny. Last year, during his official visit to the UK, a giant balloon depicting Trump as an angry baby was erected and flown over Parliament Square in London.
The baby was flown high again this year.
@realDonaldTrump Yep. It’s going this well. #TrumpBabyBlimp #TrumpBaby https://t.co/cbBGNhUjxf— Leko (@Leko)1559599553.0
The British public have taken to Twitter to showcase their other creative protest props.
This thing has audio saying “I’m a stable genius” and other classic Trump lines. True ART! #TrumpUKProtest https://t.co/B8kqm1VSzb— Corey Stoughton (@Corey Stoughton)1559648880.0
Art can come in all shapes and sizes...

Long story short, the Brits aren't too pleased with the presence of President Trump.
via: GettyAnd they've gone out of their way to make sure that he knows about it. There is one group, however, who took things to a whole new level. We're talking a defacing-famous-London-landmarks level, here.
The group in question have been identified as campaign group, Led By Donkeys.
They have been known to humiliate controversial politicians.
So they obviously weren't going to hold back with Trump.
They then referenced one of Trump's longest-standing feuds.
They didn't stop there, however.
And, of course, there was that quote...
But we thought that we'd save the best till last...
And they had no subtlety in the caption.
via: GettyTo accompany the video, they wrote: "Hey @realDonaldTrump, you just endorsed your Brexit buddy @BorisJohnson but he said some VERY NASTY things about you and he doesn’t want you to know. So we projected his words onto Big Ben. Watch with the SOUND ON".
In the mass-projected video, Boris doesn't hold back on the President.
via: GettyIn the clip, Johnson is heard stating, "Donald Trump’s ill-informed comments are complete and utter nonsense. I think he’s betraying a quite stupefying ignorance that makes him frankly unfit to hold the office of President of the United States". Not a nice thing to say about your friend...
And he didn't stop there.Boris continued slating his new buddy, saying, "I would invite him to come and see the whole of London and take him round the city but I don’t want to expose Londoners to the risk to any unnecessary risk of meeting Donald Trump". Burn.
Overall, Trump's State visit hasn't kicked off to the best start.Both the weather and the reception has been a bit rainy for the President, to say the least. Though, last night, he did get to enjoy a royal banquet in Buckingham Palace. That can't have been too shabby, could it?
Even his arrival into the country was tainted.
Give us a wave when you fly over tomorrow !! @realDonaldTrump #climatechange #ClimateChangeIsReal https://t.co/IzsT2XVpAn— born_eco (@born_eco)1559498495.0
